DESCRIPTION

The Hillier Manual of Trees and Shrubs is widely recognised as a classic horticultural literature, with more than 200,000 copies sold since first publication. The 8th edition has been thoroughly revised to keep the entries entirely up to date. Over 9,000 plants representing more than 650 genera are described in detail, making it the definitive work for any gardener. The manual is published in a handy compact form, enabling users to take it with them on their nursery and garden centre visits, and for on-the-spot reference and identification at arboreta, parks and gardens. Revised, expanded and extremely manageable, this is the definitive reference work on trees and shrubs for every gardener on the move.
